 BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Bruton Smith is removing some of the banking at Bristol Motor Speedway in response to fan complaints that the racing was boring at the once-beloved track.
Speedway Motorsports Inc. solicited fan feedback via social media following a poor turnout at the March 18 race. Once one of the toughest tickets in all of sports, the speedway that holds 160,000 was roughly half full.
The low attendance has been a continuing trend for the track since a 2007 reconfiguration.
The feedback SMI received indicated fans wanted the track back to how it was when drivers bumped and banged their way around the .533-mile bullring.
So Smith will grind the top line around the track in an effort to reduce the number of racing grooves. The goal is to make a tighter track.
